Permission levels#

Semaphore organizations can have an unlimited number of users. Users in the organization have different permissions based on their role.

The creator of an organization is its owner. There cannot be multiple owners, but it is possible to transfer the ownership.

The Owner can:

  • See all projects;
  • Add projects to the organization if they have Admin access to the repository on GitHub;
  • Transfer project ownership
  • Delete projects if they have Admin access to the repository on Github;
  • Manage people;
  • Manage billing;
  • Transfer ownership of an organization;
  • Delete an organization.

Admins#

Users with Admin permission level can:

  • See all projects;
  • Add projects to the organization if they have Admin access to the repository on GitHub;
  • Transfer project ownership
  • Delete projects if they have Admin access to the repository on Github;
  • Manage people;

Members#

Users with Member permission level can:

  • See all projects;
  • Add projects to the organization if they have Admin access to the repository on GitHub;
  • Transfer project ownership
  • Delete projects if they have Admin access to the repository on Github;

Changing the permission level#

Every user in the organization can be promoted from the Member permission level to the Admin permission level. This can be done by following these steps:

  1. Go to the People page of your organization,
  2. Click on the Promote button next to the username of the user you’d like to promote.

The same steps should be followed if you want to change the user's permission level from Admin to Member. In that case, click on the Demote button next to the username.

Only an Admin or an Owner of the organization can perform these steps.

Note: There can only be one Owner of the organization. If you’d like to change the ownership, please visit this page.
